Mr Jones lives in Paris

Mr Jones has been living in Paris
for a few years now.
A writer by his trade,
he's the orphan of a banker.
 
His nasty temper is feared
in the neighbourhood1
He hates people and music.
That's rather pathetic.
 
Now it's been a few months
since Mister Jones noticed
to his great dismay that
a neighbour is practicing his scales.
 
That often happens when he's about
to write, read or sleep.
The piano resounds
at midnight sharp.
 
He even dared try the ceiling banging trick2
You never know,
it might be a boxer using music
to mellow his temper.
 
Mister Jones eventually rang
at the door across the landing
as an extra safety measure.
 
A pale skinned guy looking like a bailiff
with a starched collar showed up.
The piano went quiet immediately.
They were invited in.
 
Mister Jones found himself
facing a smashing blonde,
a first grade doll.
He liked her at first sight.
 
A bit later he fell right into love3
just like that, struck by
her pretty bright eyes as if by lightning.
It blew the air out of his lungs.
 
They got married a couple of days later,
and had children.
Now Mr Jones tolerates music
and even sometimes people.

Mister Jones lives in Paris
Mister Jones' troubles are over.
 
  • 1. the transcription does not make sense and I can't listen to the song, so that's just a likely placeholder
  • 2. lit. "the broom trick"
  • 3. the French is pretty unusual too
